Protect children from internet with free parental control software

[ ENGLISH ].......

The Internet is a fascinating place, full of rich and interesting information. But as a gigantic virtual community, it has "good neighborhoods", "questionable neighborhoods", and "downright bad neighborhoods".

As a parent (or simply as a concerned citizen of this virtual community), you might want a good set of guidelines about where to go in this world of internet.

You need to decide for your children that which neighborhoods are OK to visit, and which ones aren't. That ability makes a big difference when you're trying to provide a safe environment for children.

Today I am going to introduce you to a FREE software which makes it easier to let your children explore and learn on the Internet, while you do what you can to keep them safe.

The software I am talking about is "K9 web protection from Blue coat"

Blue Coat® K9 Web Protection is a content filtering solution for your home computer. Its job is to provide you with a family-safe Internet experience, where YOU control the Internet content that enters your home.

Blue Coat's unique Web filtering technology divides Internet content into 60 distinct categories. These categories are stored in the master Blue Coat database, through which we maintain and update more than 15 million ratings of websites and domains. A Web site will fall into one or more of these categories, based on the content of the site. To meet your particular needs and preferences, you can configure the software to block or allow specific categories.

Salient features of K9 Web Protection -

Block 60 Content Categories

Blue Coat's unique Web filtering technology divides Internet content into 60 content categories. These categories are stored in the master Blue Coat database, through which we maintain and update more than eight million ratings of websites and domains. A Web site will fall into one or more of these categories, based on the content of the site. To meet your particular needs and preferences, you can configure the software to block or allow specific categories.


Time Restrictions

K9 Web Protection enables you to restrict the time of day users can access Web sites. If there are specific times when you do and do not want your family accessing the Web, this feature assists you in enforcing that policy.

Web Site Exceptions

In addition to the defined and custom protection levels, K9 Web Protection allows you to explicitly block or allow access to specific Web sites. For example, K9 is blocking a site, but you want to allow access to it, but not any others in the category.

Blocking Effects

K9 Web Protection offers an audible feature in which the application plays a bark when a user attempts to access a blocked site. This feature is useful to alert a parent, teacher, or other care provider that someone under his or her supervision might be stumbling onto offensive or inappropriate content.
K9 also enables Time Out Settings. If a user attempts to visit too many blocked sites in a specified period of time, K9 completely blocks access to the Web for a specified time.


URL Keywords

K9 Web Protection allows you to block access to Web pages based on keywords in the Web page URL. You can, for example, block any Web page that has the word sex in the URL.

Web Search Options

K9 Web Protection offers the option of enforcing the use of Google SafeSearch, which diminishes the amount of adult material that might be returned as a result of an Internet search. This feature is enabled by default. Currently, K9 Web Protection supports the safe search functionality of the Google Search Engine only.

View Reports of Internet Activity

K9 Web Protection allows you to view reports of all Internet browsing activity and administrative actions.
